Thinking Reputation and Human Behavior

Bryan ·
I’ve been thinking about reputation all night. Literally. Before you read any further, take one quick second to think about your definition of the word reputation . I looked it up in the dictionary mostly to make sure that I was referring to it correctly. I was surprised to find that my definition of reputation , or at least its reputation in my mind, did not quite match up. It is defined by the New Oxford English Dictionary as: It comes from the Latin reputare which means to “ think over ”.

YOUR REPUTATION GOING UP : ) OR NOT : (

Harj ·
A important part of your experience on Narrative is your Reputation. Your have a Reputation Score that is based on all of the actions taken by you a bit like in The good place (On netflix!! love it). : ) remember Eleanor Shellstrop! Anyway all content is rated based on your opinions, your reputation always influences Content Ratings. And how your content is rated impacts your reputation. (Still with me ?) This way your reputation reflects the actions you make, as well as how others perceive...

Distinctions

Malkazoid ·
In another thread, we've been considering the reputation system in an open ended way. One of the engaging aspects of reputation in the real world is that it is complex - it can be built in many ways. I think Narrative will benefit and become more sticky as an ecosystem, if the ways in which reputation can be built are varied. Please contribute any ideas you have here, about ways in which members can earn distinctions that enhance reputation. The weighting of these distinctions would be the...

Reputation with NRVE holders

jcalumpit ·
I have brought up this topic a few times in the telegram group and some had agreed to what I was suggesting. I have seen how the reputation mechanics will work. I didn't see holding NRVE on the list. Maybe give more reasons for content creators to hold their NRVE. Not everyone will want to have their own niche. By giving incentives to hold NRVE in your wallet, this will increase the total holders of NRVE. Which will allow the value to grow. As I see it, if content creator won't buy niches,...

Niche validation voting, and reputation

Malkazoid ·
Hello @Narrative Network Team Voting for the niches is becoming quite time consuming especially if we want to leave informative comments for any downvotes, or a controversial upvote. And yet the community must do this in order for the platform to work. 1) This may already be the case, but in case it isn't, I propose that the voting activity from the outset of the Chaucer Alpha be taken into account in the initial reputation scoring when the platform launches. This way the people putting...

Community board RESET??

Emily Barnett ·
So here is a question that just occurred to me.... given that the team hasn't waded in to the conversation about reputation and the reset that is meant to take place tonight or tomorrow morning, which was news to us. (you can read more here if your don't know what i am talking about. Your reputation going up :-) or not :-( ) Does this mean that our rank number is being reset or the whole community board? @Narrative Network Team please clarify.

Suggestion: Reputation for Referrals

Morning Narrative community and @Narrative Network Team So I have been actively trying to recruit new members whom will most likely be interested in posting content in my niche's and others. I would like to welcome @scottshots who is a photographer whom I found on Steemit and Dtube. This got me thinking that maybe we could have an incentive for people of a reputation award, that gets calculated starting now, for each new person we bring over to Narrative. Perhaps when...

Incentives for Steemit users to join Narrative

Malkazoid ·
Hello all! Telegram is an inspiring place today - this is the second thread motivated by talk going on there, with a guy called Elliot (thanks Elliot!) So Elliot was wondering whether there would be some incentive for heavy Steemit users to join Narrative. For instance a conversion of some sort, of their Steemit reputation, to Narrative reputation. There are obvious advantages to doing so, and just as obvious disadvantages... On the one hand, these are people we know to be highly productive,...

Does a Tribunal overruling on a Niche impact reputation?

Dana ·
In cases where the community votes incorrectly, it seems in my best interests to simply go with the flow and vote for 'the winning team' rather than vote correctly and take a reputation hit. I get the feeling that this 'gaming' the voting system is happening-- maybe not always maliciously, but to save time and boost rep. So my question using a real example: the Niche Homeopathic Treatment looks set to be accepted by the community at 12 (for)- 2 (against). Even if the remaining 8 votes go...

Redundant/invalid niches - report them here

Malkazoid ·
Redundancy anyone? As you all probably know - Narrative niches need to be unique, clear, correctly spelled, and to not violate the Terms of Service . To coordinate down-voting of redundant or invalid niches, rather than creating dozens of threads, we can alert the community here in one place. Bookmark the thread for easy access, and follow the thread to be alerted via email when there are new posts. Remember - voting to validate or invalidate niches under review, builds your Narrative...

The Content-Moderation Time Gap

MichelleG ·
Hey everybody, So, I want to address a concern of mine that I've been mentally calling the "Content-Moderation Time Gap" (hereafter "the Mod Gap" for short). The Mod Gap is the several months between when it is projected content creators will be able to post content, tagging it for future moderation, and when it is projected moderator elections will take place subsequently allowing mods to perform their duties. December - Content Creator Uploading Mod Gap March - Moderator...

Congratulations on the speedy implementation of reputation in the alpha. The secret sauce has been poured! I'll probably have more thoughts as the mechanism of Rep unfolds (not by disclosure but by observation - I understand that the Team won't reveal any secrets, and rightly so). But here are my initial thoughts: Puny reps We are but children starting our journey on Narrative, and it is fitting that our reps should be low at this stage! Relish the sensation of being puny, and look forward...

Reputation is Live!

MOLLY O ·
Today, we introduced Reputation scores in the Narrative Alpha. Reputation is the key to ensuring a quality experience on Narrative. By correlating reputation with actions, the influence anyone has in the network is always dependent on the established reputation that each has earned. Through this system, ratings and votes are always weighted by the reputation of each participant. We can’t give away all the "secret sauce" but if you want to learn more about how and why reputation is computed...

Now that Rep is here, Is the 7 day block after a rejected Niche still relevant? and other issues.

Hi All, So I made a small mistake in a niche, I wrote security when I should have wrote insecurity, and rightly so it made my nice description confusing. It got voted down. It could have been an easy fix after voting. Perhaps if I had of noticed the trend of down-voting early enough i could have commented about my willingness to fix the small error if approved. But a last I was at a funeral and needed to leave the Narrative community for a week. I am not upset. This was my error. But I have...

Reputation Adjustments Coming Next Month

Ted ·
Hey everyone- There is currently a bug in our reputation system that is improperly rewarding/demeriting some actions. Basically, we accidentally reversed a couple of things so that in some cases negative actions are increasing someone's reputation and, conversely, positive actions are hurting someone's reputation. That's not good. This is not impacting everyone, because it is only a certain part of the reputation formula that is working improperly, but it's obviously a pretty major bug. Of...

A Few Tips for New Members starting in Alpha

Since we just opened up a new round I thought it would be prudent to make a few suggestions for people just starting out. Hopefully they have signed up here as well. If Not, well... Tip #1 Join The community page, as well as Alpha. They are separate but equally important. Right now we cannot follow people in alpha, only niches.

Hi folks, I'm new here. I nominated and later purchased the python niche. I have done some voting on niches and surfed around. My reputation is a 3.

Gaming the System

Hey @Narrative Team and fellow Narrators! I was staring at the accrued NRVE reward bucket the other day and had a bit of an unsettling thought. Has the @Narrative team thought about safeguards as to how 'popular' content is ranked? Perhaps this all ties into the reputation algorithm, which makes me feel better. The immediate concern is of course someone 'viewing their own post a ton of times'...hopefully unique views are observed in some way, along with...

Moderator performance reports, and niche owner role in moderator management

Hey! In conversation with @Banter and @Emily Barnett and others, I came up with some thoughts that could improve moderator performance, and also give niche owners a means to address moderator underachievement effectively, within parameters controlled by the system (to prevent abuses by owners). The thoughts revolve around moderator performance reports periodically sent to owners, and depending on the system-determined analysis for each moderator, opening up...

A Guide to Maintaining Reputation on Narrative : aka death of Simple Rep

I have been active in Narrative's Alpha since March 29, 2018. When I say active, I mean extremely active.

Question

Reputation Score

Garden Gnome Publications ·
I noticed that reputation scores have changed since implementing the certification feature. Interestingly, mine went up before I submitted my certification. I see that some others went down. The weight for behavior and quality have been changed. It was 40/40. Now it's 10/60. Why the change? Also, I'm curious if there is a way to see users ranked by reputation? If not, that might be an interesting thing to see on the stats page. Maybe a top 10, or something.

Democracy is a cornerstone of Narrative Our moderators will be elected by the Community. If you visit this page , you will see many people have nominated themselves to be elected to moderate. Moderation holds many benefits. It is a paid gig you can perform anywhere in the world if you have a device and an internet connection.

Good Morning and Good Day to this amazing and exciting platform! I'm so impressed with the boatload of content; congratulations to Narrative for its vision and the community for its prolific writings. Suggestion, and forgive me for wanting faster information without searching, can we get a link on the 'Congrats You're Certified' page or in the menu for my profile (?) on "How to Boost Reputation."

Reputation Score Bug Identified (and Fixed Soon)

Hi everyone- You may have thought it strange that no one seems to have a reputation score greater than 69 currently. Well, we wondered why too, and identified a bug in our code that was suppressing scores. This bug affects everyone, but because it only has to do with one part of the reputation formula, some are impacted more than others. So, that is the bad news. The good news is that we have already fixed the issue (in our development environment) and plan to roll it out to everyone when we...

A single missed payment can block a user with excellent reputation.

Vico Biscotti ·
To my surprise, I just noticed that @Malkazoid got a Conduct Negative because of failing to pay a niche he bid for (Trolling). Getting a conduct status of exactly 0 , for a member with an excellent track, makes no sense. I get that those measures were taken for cheating members, but something is seriously wrong here. One or two mistakes shouldn't ground active and honest members. In a range 0-100, zero should mean seriously bad conduct.

decrease the percentage of reputation allocated to certification

Gosia Rokicka ·
This is going to be an unpopular subject, I suspect (with the only Narrator who would probably upvote it not present on the community forum as it seems...) - but anyway, this is what I think. It seems that it is not true that reputation can never be bought, can only be earned. As far as I can see it, you can buy A THIRD of it for 15 USD. A third makes a lot of difference and how is it fair that users get it merely for proving they're unique human beings, without any consideration for the...

Unfair 4 months "Conduct Negative"

Hello. Yesterday a post of mine was deleted due to supposedly "Conduct Negative". The only thing I did was write a post in spanish and I did not know that it was against the rules. I've been active in this platform since it started and I have never done something wrong. I think just fair warning would have been enough for me to know I should not post in spanish, and that's it. But lowering my reputation and putting me as conduct negative seems too extreme just for a language mistake. I beg...

How are weights on niche approvals calculated?

Vico Biscotti ·
I see that my vote on niches weights 0.68, while I'm rep 85. Other users have the same weight as the rep (eg 0.98 with rep 98). Other users have a weight way lower than rep (eg 0.13 with rep 63). I don't see coherence in those weights. Which is the logic behind?

Reputation - Quality analysis

Szabo ·
Hello! My quality analysis is 30, with a sad emoticon next to it, from which I understand that the quality of my posts and comments and other stuff is low. My question is why is that score low when I have 5 posts published with all of them having only upvotes (100%) except one, which has 3 votes (69 % rating). As far as I know I don't have downvoted comments. It seems to me that this score does not give an accurate depiction of the quality of my posts. Thank you,

How long do reputation dings last for?

Christina Gleason ·
Since we don't know what the reputation formula actually is, I can only guess at why my reputation has been completely stuck at 93, and my leading theory is that a few things have counted against me in a way that they act as semi-permanent loss of rep points. I was hoping we could get an answer regarding how long such things count against us. My list of transgressions, as it were, include not paying for an auction on time - something that would not have happened with the new price-lock when...

More transparency on the reasons that led to conduct negative.

Vico Biscotti ·
When a member becomes conduct negative, currently his or her reputation just displays "This member is being penalized for certain actions they have taken." More detail can be retrieved in the activity but with two limitations: The item usually does not display a specific reason (AUP violation, for example, is vague and does not give the idea of the severity of the violation - nor the duration of the penalty - at the time). Over time, the activity log is easily cleared, especially if the...

Re: Distinctions

Malkazoid ·
An obvious category of distinctions is content distinctions. For a given day, week, month or year, algorithms could determine, or propose for voting, candidates who have distinguished themselves through the quality of their contributions. This could be broken down into categories such as 'originality', 'popularity', 'hilarity', 'outside the box'... etc... For the higher frequency awards, algorithms would by necessity bear the brunt of determining those who receive distinctions... but for the...

Re: Distinctions

Would it make sense for the owner of a niche to be able to positively rate content posted to their niche in certain ways - perhaps moderators of the niche as well? This wouldn't be targeted at reducing someone's reputation for posting inappropriately: a niche owner simply wouldn't approve such content, or it would be moderated in some way by the moderators. But it could be good for niche owners and moderators of the niches to be able to enhance reputation by rating highly the content that...

This is great! I definitely used the Holy Trinity terminology incorrectly when using it to describe classes.

Attached is a very basic example of how we could gamify the reputation system. I put in a couple of different items one could complete in order to gain experience which in turn would increase or "level up" their reputation ranking. Each reputation level could be the basis on how a member receives a portion of the rewards. Starting to run out of steam so would love some input and feedback.

Re: Distinctions

Michael Farris ·
Thanks for this. A couple of things. I'm participating with two hats on. One as a narrative team guy who will have to hack out solutions to "reputation" in real world code and all its attendant compromises. AND the academic Michael with deep roots in building models for how we "know" things. So even I am head over heels on a concept, it may not make it to code.... That said, I am encouraged that you get my thoughts on MMO and Holy Trinity as a modeling new approach to reputation.
